Get in the driver’s seat with gameplay video footage in ‘Forza Motorsport 5’

Turn 10 Studios, maker of the highly anticipated “Forza Motorsport 5” racing title for Xbox One, made three big announcements on Thursday.

First, Turn 10 unveiled the first-ever direct-feed gameplay video footage (see the video above). The video features the 2012 Pagani Huayra racing in the snowy elevations of the infamous Bernese Alps circuit.

Second, Turn 10 introduced the all-new Career Mode. Unlike traditional racing game career modes where players move from low-performance cars and are forcefully guided into more powerful cars over time, the career mode in “Forza Motorsport 5” gives players the power to choose their own paths through their careers.

Third, it was announced that the Silverstone Circuit will officially make its return to the “Forza Motorsport” franchise in “Forza Motorsport 5.” Known as the “home of British Motor Racing,” the Silverstone Circuit is 3.6 miles long and features 18 corners ranging from high-speed sweepers such as Woodcote to intricate series like the Maggotts and Becketts corners.

Xbox Wire has the complete story, including images of the Silverstone Circuit.
